This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Dale’s comment: “The reprimand was not related to a client - my attorney actually asked the Bar for an opinion under the self reporting requirements and they issued a reprimand to for both of us for filing a case in the wrong venue, not dishonesty. It was not about a client, fees, or a grievance. The opinion states that I did not mislead anyone, just that it “lacks candor” to the Court since there are specific rules on venue.”

Dale has worked long and hard to untangle our estate mess. He was very helpful when we hired him after another lawyer told me I could do it myself after he completed the probate part of the will and had my husband and I appointed executors. He has spent long hours trying to unknot an estate that has not been managed for many years due to the poor health of our family member. He is very competent on making sure that eveyrthing is done correctly despite repeated attacks from other family members who are impatient for their inheritence as noted by the thinly veiled attack in the review done 3 days ago( in which there are many errors-) This person is not even allowed knowledge of the estate and he is very negative and hateful with his impatience. This is the same person who could not be bothered to visit with his grandmother for many years. Dale has been helpful,suuportive and caring. He is the best!!

The first four months after retaining Mr. Davidson, he appeared to be very professional. Then with no explanation whatsoever, he ceased to initiate any communication relevant to the matter for which he was retained. All fees requested by Mr. Davidson were paid in a timely manner, so that was not the problem. Requests for updates went unanswered. Having no results THIRTEEN months after retaining Mr. Davidson, no proof that he was actively representing me after the first four months , his overall lack of professionalism, and not to mention the money I had lost, I wrote a letter of dismissal to Mr. Davidson and retained another lawyer with whom I had a postive and successful experience.

I have known Dale for many years. He is very capable, intelligent, aggressive, kind, thoughtful, and exhibits all of the qualities of an excellent lawyer. I would highly recommend Dale for your legal needs in his areas of practice.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Dale for over 20 years, and find him to be the expert in Elder Law, VA benefits and Estate Planning. I also practice in these areas, but often rely upon Dale for guidance in complex long-term care matters. I highly recommend him.
